One Caucasus Music is always the result of common work of the great musicians coming from different countries, different genres and different music background.

We are honored to present one of the headliners of One Caucasus 2016: Huntertones (USA).

Thanks to the support of U.S. Embassy in Tbilisi Huntertones will not only be one of our headliners. As the 'resident' band in Tserakvi (coming exclusively from USA only for One Caucasus) they will work and perform together with some of the best bands and musicians from Caucasus and beyond (keep up with us to learn more about the music matches for Huntertones). But that's not all - being the participant of One Caucasus you will have chance to join the open workshops on musical storytelling and music management/business led by Huntertones members. 

About Huntertones

Huntertones is a high energy horn-driven band founded in Columbus, OH and currently based in Brooklyn, NY. The band’s signature sound comes from adventurous original compositions and arrangements that meld jazz, funk, soul, hip-hop, R&B, and rock - all written by the band’s frontmen! 

They were selected by the U.S. Department of State to serve as musical ambassadors and engage with international audiences, students and local artists from around the globe. Other recent performances include appearances at major U.S. and international jazz festivals, as well as a show at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, OH. In 2015 Huntertones released their first self-titled EP, mixed by Grammy Award winning engineer Bassy Bob (Herbie Hancock, Soulive, Brian McKnight). Individually, members of Huntertones have compiled a diverse resume of collaborations with top artists in the pop, jazz, soul, and musical theater worlds. This includes work with Snarky Puppy, Jon Batiste and Stay Human, O.A.R., Andy Grammar, Allen Stone, Phillip Phillips, Ricky Martin, Umphrey’s McGee, Red Baraat, Eric Krasno, Fred Wesley, Rashawn Ross, Jeff Coffin, Micky Dolenz, Hadden Sayers, Lew Soloff, Sean Jones, Felix Pastorius, Tony Monaco, Byron Stripling, Bobby Floyd, and Christian Howes; Tony winners Norbert Leo Butz, and Lena Hall; and ensembles such as the Glenn Miller Orchestra, Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey, the national tour of Guys and Dolls, the Columbus Jazz Orchestra, the Cleveland Jazz Orchestra, and many others.

As One Caucasus is also about some of the "firsts ever" in Caucasus -- we will look for some new challenges we would share with Huntertones (like for example to co-create the biggest reggae orchestra in Caucasus with some fantastic musicians from the region ;))
